The Swiss company’s Transport Revenue Division, which has customers in the United States and eight other countries, consists of three business units – transit, parking and toll collection.

“This combination will solidify ACS’ position as the leading provider of transportation solutions to governments worldwide in terms of revenue,” Tom Burlin, group president of ACS Government Solutions, said in a prepared statement. “With Transport Revenue, we will add a strong management team, leading-edge technological solutions and a global marketing platform serving customers in over 30 countries.”
